As promised some news on the marquetry top for the treasure box series #2 The challenge here is to insert the oval white bone inlay first then cut the rest of the background repositioning the pack perfectly as some of the marquetry looks like it moves in front and in the back of those bones. I first build the pack with 4 layers of paperbacked ebony sawn veneer I used a idea of mine and an idea from Patrick to locate perfectly the veneer with the 2 drawings that had to be used...

I know it has been awhile since I posted. But I have been busy with work and playing with my new toy. Plus dealing with the loss of both my Mother and my wife’s Mother within two weeks of each other, has been a really trying year. But the reason for this post is to show you my new baby and toy. Rikon 70-100 mini lathe. Bigger than my old one and Wow what a difference.

You might be wondering why there hasn’t been a post on this blog for some time. I have just been occupied with, you guessed it, garden work and getting our outdoor stuff stored for the winter, but I did manage to get most of the repairs and finishing touches done on my Wizard marquetry and even managed to get it into my veneer press today. So here is what I did after the initial cutting on my Chevalet. Repairs, repairs and repairsYou might remember that I had the pattern coming off ...
“The scurviest band of blackguards to ever sails before the mast, we be!…” -An Anonymous Pirate This week’s blog post is not entirely related to woodworking. Why? Because it is all about my favorite day in September, of course: International Talk Like A Pirate Day !! I always prepare for this much-anticipated event with my annual reading of “Treasure Island” and visiting the TLAP sites on the Wonderful World Wide Web. The week leading up to the ‘big day’ finds me brushing up o...
For this particular wooden sign, I made a stencil for the inner profile and routed by hand. I then routed all the recess area by hand. Tough on the hands, but its a lot faster then the CNC. At least my CNC machine :) Thanks for lookingCustom Wood Signs by Scott, Lazy River Studio
Yesterday was another full and busy day. Not only did we finish updating our site, but I finished creating my pattern packet as well for the SLDP225 MUD Witches Boots. It may sound silly to many, but I am really proud of not only the design, but also the pattern packet itself. I truly feel it was one of my best efforts and was quite an accomplishment for me to make. It isn't that the project is particularly difficult. As a matter of fact, I believe it is very easy. But...
Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! #15: Massive Manzanita! - The pallet arrived the project begins!
Well we got ourselves in about 800lbs of manzanita burl … root ball that is … California scrub tree … the golden state’s original ornamental wood. I plan to spin these into an assortment of bowls. I was hoping for a bit wetter but it is what is is the state of CA is in a drought and this is drying out EVERYTHING! So working with this has been a little more challenging and beating me up more than I would like but the results are coming out beautiful! And YES all w...
